decided not to use the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip in the fight to cut spending the the vote including a provision requiring congress to approve budgets and withholding pay for lawmakers until that happens. urn the legislation, they suspend the debt ceiling through may 18th, and congress raises the by whatever debt was incurred at the time. i don't know how you do that. just expand the ceiling. just not going to pay the credit cards. we don't care. meanwhile, as the dead line approaches, there's a chance the tax refund could be at risk. joining me is the managing direct for wealth health financial planning. rich, great to have you on the show. here's the deal. so congress has enough money to go through february 15th, mid february, about the time everybody starts trying to get the tax refunds. they file taxes. now, i know you are against refunds, but do you think it's possible they delay refunds? >> i'm hopeful it's not. i think the reality is congress will do the right thing. possibly suspend the debt ceiling, allow for, you know, lenders to get paid both, you know, people ho
the debt ceiling, sometimes it's suggested that it's not compassionate to not spend money. where is the compassion in spending money that we don't have that's being borrowed and will have to be repaid by future generations of americans, kids and grandkids? our country is facing enormous fiscal challenges that if left unchecked will have a disastrous impact on the future of our nation. the simple truth is that government is spending more than it's taking in, and this pattern must not, cannot in fact continue. during the last two years alone the government has spent more than $7.3 trillion and increased the nation's debt by more than $3.2 trillion. we didn't get into this situation overnight. it's been years in the making. our staggering national debt and deficits are the responsibility of many congresses and presidents from both political parties who have allowed us to live well beyond our means for far too long. americans deserve leadership in washington to confront these fiscal challenges and fight for the future of our nation. but to date our president and our congress -- this
, is that having broken the link between specific spending cuts and specific dollar increase in the debt ceiling it becomes easier for congress to shift the fight over spending and taxes and revenue on to different ground. of course, the quester and the -- the continuing resolution to fund the government, but you're hearing some of both parties saying they might even accept the sequester. some of the stakes appear to be fading from these disagreements that paralyzed washington at the end of last year. >> when i heard this original deal profrksd i thought it was on the condition that the senate eventually congress had to actually pass a budget finally. >> that's still on the table. >> that is still on the table. a little bit less clear is the fate of the idea that somehow pay would be suspended for members of congress if they don't pass a budget. >> right. >> there are questions about the constitutionality of that provision, but the entire provision is to try to force the senate to force a pass a budget, and the senate intends to do that. >> that's significant because it's written within the law
resolution that is done in the government. we have the debt ceiling. these three major things are going to consume congress because republicans and democrats don't agree how to resolve those. he will become tied up dealing with this and it has to be done. we have to deal with these things. immigration and gun-control, these are things, like a marriage, almost wish list items. i know immigration is a big item appeared that will also be hard to move something that is progressive or liberal with a divided congress, as is gun- control. we all know and assault weapons ban cannot get through the house. it's not going to get through. it is possible they will get background checks. maybe it very scaled-back versions of what the president was talking about yesterday. but in a full-scale, you will not able to get assault weapons ban through. he will not able to get immigration through in the way progressives would like. so that probably will not happen. but the spending will have to be dealt with. sources will be made, in that sense. host: we're talking about president obama's second term. we wan

of months, we talk about the debt ceiling, what good is a ceiling if you keep raising it and you don't make spending cuts to keep yourself under that number? it has no purpose. >> neil: i want to take a look at the corner of wall and broad. many argue the reason why it was up 62 points is the fact that, whew -- it's a relief they won't bring this to the brink. i would think cooler heads, wruns they prevail, they may not like -- democrats and republicans -- essentially, punted on this. and they just delayed making the tough choices. >> for some reason, obama and the senate democrats have gotten away with an extraordinary amount of nonsense. they haven't put forth a budget -- >> neil: they say they will and include tax hikes. >> will it make significant cuts or will it be the baseline budgeting? -- [overlapping dialogue] jierks do you think -- >> neil: do you think they are going to see through this -- that is the markets? >> yeah, i think they are going to kick the can down the road. i don't know, i mean, republicans seem to think they need to cave to get the fireworks on the left -- >> neil
as the outcome in some cases. >> of course, the republicans wanted the raising of the debt ceiling attached to spending cuts and they ended up not insisting on that. is that a dangerous about-face for them? >> well, the old saying in military circles, survive and advance. the republicans have to survive so that it they can continue to advance. you heard the very bold statements from the president in his inaugural address yesterday where he talked about same things, marriage, global warming, all of these issues, gun control that are tough totes that are a big deal. and republicans know as soon as they break or the fever is broken on this fiscal problem, then the president's going to start pushing them on the social issues and the other liberal wish list items. so the president is perfectly content, i think, to keep the president from going from fiscal impasse to fiscal impasse, bet chance to get cut and keeps him swinging a bigger stick. >> what about spending cuts? >> we've heard so much about it during the presidential election and now that the president has been gnawiinaugurd for the seco
million in spending cuts. republicans have to get their acts together to negotiate better on the debt ceiling and other things. neil: what is the overture on the republican party? saying that they are going to push for a three-month extension? >> sure, what i read in it was from a pr standpoint in saying that gets all is a bad idea and will hurt the economy. and for economy a year and a half ago. republicans are saying that maybe it's a smart move in the sense that they want to say enough of this pr stunt. let's take the falls off the table but let's get to the real essence of spending cuts. the president is going to keep coming back. but it's more revenue. but it's more tax increases. we knew that in the campaign. neil: there is this paraphrase between the rich and the poor that you alluded to. maybe he has not done this. >> i don't think he is done on more tax increases. neil: more deductions? >> deductions and perhaps more rate hikes. this was alluded to during the fiscal cliff talks by various democratic leaders. at one point john boehner and the president talking about $1.2 trill
. what is the latest? >> reporter: as part of raising the debt ceiling the house republicans will demand that the senate pass a budget with spending cuts included and will try to force getting it done by april 15th. a short time ago the top senate republican issued this call to action. >> and so it's my hope that the president will finally be willing to do what republicans have been asking him to do since his first inauguration four years ago and that is to work with us on identifying durable solutions to the problems that we can only solve together. to put aside those things we know we can't agree on and focus on what we can agree on. and we should start with spending and debt. because if we don't get a handle on that nothing else matters. >> reporter: bottom line republicans recognize this raising the debt ceiling issue isn't a very good one for them. working on deficit and spending budget is better for them. >> reporter: what do democrats say about passing a budget today. >> reporter: chuck schumer said the senate would pass a budget this year. the battle will be over spending cuts an

. speaker, it's important for the american people to know that when we talk about raising the debt ceiling, congress is not approving new spending. we're not borrowing -- we're saying that we're going to pay the bills on debts we already acquired. mr. speaker, it's kind of like this. if you have a family and somehow you have a mortgage to pay, you've already obligated to pay a mortgage, now, if you don't have the money for your mortgage, you may have to go to your cousin, your brother, your uncle and say, i need you to help me until next week so you can pay the mortgage. now you borrow money to an obligation you already owe. and if you don't pay you will default on. now, you can also have a situation where somebody who doesn't have enough money but goes into, you know, a local electronic store and says, i'm going to buy a big screen television there on my credit card. now, those are two different scenarios. vor borrowing to meet obligations you have already acquired and borrowing money on something you can't afford. it's borrowing obligations we already have. it's not borrowing for new exp
